See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

A formula to solve this problem is:

$t = f + \left(v \cdot c\right)$

Where:

$t$ is the total cost: what we are solving for in this problem.

$f$ is the fixed cost for the job: $75.00 for this problem. $v$is the variable cost for the job:$8.50 for this problem

$c$ is the count of items being produced for the job: 25 fr this problem.

Substituting and calculating $t$ gives:

t = $75.00 + ($8.50 * 25)

t = $75.00 + 212.50 t =$287.50

The cost to have names imprinted on 25 jackets would be: \$287.50
